“Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.” - Marianne Williamson
When we take delight in the happiness of another and genuinely rejoice in their success or good fortune, rather than in a begrudging way, we are abiding in Mudita -sympathetic joy.
Mudita has been called the mind-deliverance of gladness because this force of happiness actually liberates us. Unlike a state of mere excitement or giddiness, the quality of sympathetic joy can sometimes challenge our deep assumptions about loneliness, loss, and happiness. It has the ability to show us another possibility.
Can we allow the lives of others to be different from ours and still feel happy for them? Can we rejoice for them as their happiness grows in whatever way that is happening?

Excerpt from On Community as Guru from the book Yoga and the Quest for the true self by Stephen Cope
Yoga unites the mind, body, and soul in a way that eases tension, reduces inflammation, and promotes health and well being. Regular practice will help you reach improve and perfect poses, correct posture and positioning, and improve your breathing and outlook on life.
Yoga is a great way to improve your endurance in other physical activities. After a run, or heavy workout, yoga will help your body relax while stretching, strengthening, and lengthening the muscles you were just working on.
Yoga not only helps improve your body, but also helps with mindfulness and meditation. It is important to take a break from daily life in order to focus on yourself and get clarity. Focusing on your breath during practice is key to staying in tune with your mind and body.
